I'm thinking of working on one of these. Seems like they don't get very much attention compared with Vingt, although I think very highly of them. They seem to be very Debussian, who is a big favorite of mine. Anyone else enjoy them and do you have any favorites?

Once I played the first one, rather easy, "La Colombe"... and I didn't really enjoyed myself (sorry for the fans).
I cannot tell about the other ones, though.

Technique-wise, they're about the same level as Debussy Preludes, so if you can do Feux d'artifice or Voiles you'll have no problems with these. Take a look at the first and last ones.

They are very old fashioned, compared to 20 Regards or Catalogue d' Oiseaux

I rather like Plaint Calme, which is technically easy but pushes you to think expressively.
